Disabled people are "having to pay more than they should just to live the same lives as others", the chair of a new independent commission into living costs says.
City businessman Robin Hindle Fisher, who will lead the new Commission on Extra Costs, says markets aren't working efficiently enough for disabled people.
The commission will seek to find out how to get disabled consumers a better deal on anything from taxi fares and energy bills to wheelchairs.
The extra costs disabled people pay have a direct impact on living standards, prevent many from contributing fully to their local communities, and from doing many of the things most of us take for granted.
